It’s oddly fitting that the actor who played Biff Tannen doesn’t really talk about Back to the Future. Biff was the outcast in the films, the villain, always plotting and the butt of the joke, sometimes literally. That actor, Tom Wilson, now makes his living doing stand up comedy and music and because he gets asked about the classic trilogy so often, he’s apparently created a card he hands to people that answers all the same questions he gets asked over and over again.

Over the weekend, I visited Orlando Florida to preview Universal Studios Orlando’s two new entertainment options, the new Superstar Parade and nighttime watershow Cinematic Spectacular – 100 Years of Movie Memories. I also found the time to ride the new renovated version of Island of Adventure’s The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man ride. After the jump you can find my thoughts on all three of these new theme park experiences, along with photos we took at the preview event.

We’re reached a point in the evolution of film criticism where a shift is occurring. Critics who’ve been in the game for decades and decades are slowly beginning to give way to a younger, more vocal audience, many of whom are online. The beautiful thing about that is, though they all share a love of cinema, everyone has their own opinions of how and why we got there. And the best way to show that is with a top ten list.
The online contingent prides themselves upon being the new guard and, to that end, our friends at Film School Rejects polled 37 online critics and four young filmmakers for their lists of the ten greatest films of all time. They then gave those lists a point value and came up with a top ten that’s simultaneously familiar and controversial as it certainly caters to a younger demographic. Check it out and leave your thoughts below. Read More »
Yes, it’s true. Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg, the creators of the Harold & Kumar franchise and directors of upcoming American Reunion, have recently been quoted saying they’d like to remake Back to the Future. The pair just signed a first look deal at Universal and, in an interview about that, they mentioned the classic time-travel franchise as something they like work with a few decades down the road.
Are they being serious? Read the quote and some thoughts after the jump.
Update: Hurwitz has commented and explain the quote via Twitter. Check it out below.

Saturday marks the next step in the evolution of Mondo: the opening of their very own gallery. And while we can’t yet reveal what’s in store for that (check back Sunday for the reveal and more later in the week), Mondo’s three headed team of Justin Ishmael, Rob Jones and Mitch Putnam were (kind of) willing to give updates on what they have planned for 2012 outside the gallery.
Will there be more Mondo Mystery Movies? What’s in store for San Diego Comic-Con? When might we see more Jurassic Park, Back to the Future and DC posters? Is there an Avengers poster in the works? How many Pixar posters are left? Answers to all these questions and more after the jump. Read More »
Ask any poster fan what two films they’d like Mondo to make posters for and the answers are very likely to be Ghostbusters and Back to the Future. The former might take a while (as you can read here) but the latter is now a reality. Mondo has just revealed their first ever Back to the Future poster. But it isn’t just one image; it’s three. Phantom City Creative has designed three different posters that, when framed together, form an image of the Delorian. There’s also a variant that assembles the three images into one poster. Check them out after the jump. Read More »
The year 2015 is coming up fast, and it seems like many of the future inovations seen in the future Hill Valley of Back to the Future: Part II have not come to pass — but I’m still hopeful that we’ll all be in flying hovercars in just three years time (um, yeah). Last year, Nike finally produced a limited edition “preview” run of the self-lacing Nike MAG sneakers. I saw last week on Gizmodo that we’re getting close to inventing the real-life Mr. Fusion. And this weekend at the New York Toy Fair, Mattel has finally announced the much anticipated release of the Hoverboard, a futuristic hovering skateboard that Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) used in the Back to the Future sequels.

Well, we did warn you that the project was still in the very early stages — but it now seems like that Back to the Future stage show may be even farther away than we’d thought.
Yesterday, news broke that director Robert Zemeckis, his co-writer/producer Bob Gale, and the film’s composer Alan Silvestri were in early talks to bring Marty McFly, Doc Brown, and their iconic DeLorean to Broadway, and Zemeckis’ rep even confirmed that the three were “in preliminary creative discussions.” However, Gale is now cautioning that the story should be taken with a giant grain of salt. Read his comments after the jump.
